TOV MEOD
“In a universe of blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won’t find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind pitiless indifference.”
It is not good
Broken relationship = sin
The world is broken. It is not always good.
We do not experience the delight of God.
The image of God is shattered.
